These are the perfect on-the-go healthy snack!  Rolled in coconut, these bites have the texture of cookie dough and the flavors reminiscent of a dreamy afternoon on the beach.  Really, what more could you want?

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Ground Up x Barre3 Cashew Coconut Nut Butter (One 4oz Jar)

  • 1 cup pitted Medjool Dates (18 to 20 large dates)

  • 1 1/3 cup unsweetened, shredded Coconut, divided

  • 1 cup dry roasted, unsalted Cashews

  • 1 cup pitted, dried apricots (About 28)

  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Directions:

  1. In a food processor, combine the nut butter, dates, 1 cup coconut, cashews and sea salt.  Blend until a sticky dough is formed, approximately 2-3 minutes

  2. Add the apricots.  Pulse for 30 seconds to a minute. (Personal preference for how big you want the chunks!)

  3. Roll into 1 1/2-inch balls. Roll each in the remaining 1/3 cup coconut to finish.

  4. Transfer the bites to the refrigerator for storage. Bites will keep for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator, or for up to 2 months in the freezer.
